Hi thank you for your message, sorry what do you mean by CIA?
Hi thank you for your message, well it would be down to you to appeal again. Looking at the council's Statement of Licensing Policy and Cumulative Impact Assessment document it would appear that they require the "applicant wishing to obtain a new licence or vary a licence for premises, within the cumulative impact area, must demonstrate through the operating schedule, the steps that they intend to take so that the Council and responsible authorities can be satisfied that granting a new or varied licence will not add to the cumulative impact already beingexperienced." Therefore, it seems likely that you need to continue to work on that part of the application, I note for example that you got tacit police approval but the guidance also indicates liason with the Public Protection Service (noise) team of the council therefore, it may be that you need their approval as well.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
Hi thank you for your message, given the location in the CIA area you are definitely facing an uphill struggle to get a licence therefore, it is always going to be difficult. The wording in the council guidance for example states by "publishing an Assessment the Council is setting down a strong statement of intent about its approach to considering applications for grant and variation of premises licences or club premises certificates in the area described." That said, it is still open to the council to grant the licence but this is an exception to the strong statement of the assessment and policy. It is hard to see what further steps you could take to satisfy the council that you would not be adding to the noise impact in the area that said, you may wish to look at the location of noise complaints published by the council for example if you could demonstrate that there were no complaints on your particular street then this would help.
